News from the Stars February 2013 | Print |
These predictions use the sidereal placements of planets used in Vedic astrology, western astrology uses the tropical zodiac. The aspects will be the same in both systems only the signs and degrees differ by 23-24 degrees.

The month of February Mars and Mercury will conjunct. This entire month will have the influence of these two planets coming together. Mercury will go retrograde hovering very close to Mars around the end of the month. Mercury as it slows down in motion before it reverses is intensified by the forcefulness of Mars. This will bring forth and magnify everything connected with both these two energies.

Mercury rules over all forms of communication meaning anyway we connect to each other. This entails communications such as telephones, internet, television, air travel, computers, vehicles involved in any kind of transit, cars, buses, trains, and ships. It rules speaking, writing, publications, education and learning. So it rues over transit and trade of all kinds, exchange of ideas, products and sales.

Mars is considered a malefic planet because it’s energy is harsh, direct, and is associated with war. Mars rules anger, disputes, attacks, weapons of all types, guns, knives, bombs, and explosives. On a positive note it also rules intelligence, sports, ambition, and courage. And many are unaware that it rules over property and real estate.

Mercury is a neutral planet and is said to take on the energy of the plants it is with in a chart. So as Mercury conjoins with Mars the mind becomes provoked with anger and hostility. This combination is excellent for lawyers for their job is to provoke but with an intelligent mind.

Mercury combined with the disruption of Mars means any form of communication will be disturbed and disrupted in a forceful manner. Mars can sometimes indicate violence. So certain areas of communications should be avoided if possible this month. Travel, signing contracts, and arbitration.

Another factor involved in this conjunction in February is that both Mercury and Mars will transit over Neptune. Neptune is known to cause fogginess, denial and even deception. But in mundane astrology is rules fuel and oil. This brought together with the combination of Mars and Mercury produces miscommunication that results in anger. But there will be problems with the production or delivering fuel needed to export or import and travel. There will be unforeseen problems with fuel, and the lines of communication are broken down, such as radar, computers, and the internet.

The sign these planets occupy influence the results as well. Mercury and Mars are in the air sign of Aquarius further enforcing the indication of confusion with travel, communications and even severe weather pertaining to intense winds.

The faster moving planets (Sun, Mercury, Mars, Venus) are coming together where they will be traveling in unison creating havoc in the signs they converge month after month for the next four months.


February 4: Mars will conjunct Neptune in Aquarius. This will intensify and activate Neptune, meaning hidden agendas will surface and cause anger and fear. Corruption and financial fraud will be uncovered in the financial markets. There is a major glitch in the production and distribution of oil around the world causing gas prices to suddenly rise.

Financially there is a lock on the ability for these companies to reap the benefits of financial gain. The oil companies are in trouble. The government begins excessive taxation, which ultimately affects the middle class. This glitch will have major repercussions globally causing financial losses. Forces behind this problem will keep their secrets of manipulation under cover. The media will instill fear but with many false accusations focusing the attention away from the truth.

02/18: Saturn turns retrograde
02/23: Mercury turns retrograde
This causes a stalemate between the government and the people. More constraints are put on the oil companies damaging the economy. It will limit growth in the United States because of dependency on foreign oil, which may be withheld. There is a political war emerging, and the end result could be devastating. This war is actually within our government, but will be blamed on foreigners. The controls that rule the world will not go easy on the power hungry political forces in play, and there may be a radical event to eliminate their further actions.
